The consultation on the possible introduction of a dog control Public Spaces Protection Order (PSPO) closed on 15 July 2018.

We would like to thank those who took the opportunity to have their say. We value your opinion in shaping our local area. The supporting information for the consultation is available below.

Why we consulted

We wanted your views on whether we should introduce a PSPO for dog controls. The PSPOs are centred on improving and protecting the local area for all residents and visitors to Wirral.

What happens next?

The results of the consultation will be analysed over the coming weeks. We will update these pages when further details are available.

Cabinet member for the Environment, Councillor Matthew Patrick, has announced that beach restrictions will not go ahead and form part of the PSPO. 

Sports pitches will now be analysed on a pitch by pitch basis to ensure any future restrictions are right for all residents.
